Into the Raging Sea
Thirty-Three Mariners, One Megastorm and the Sinking of El Faro
In 2015, an American cargo ship went down with all hands near the eye of Hurricane Joaquin. Drawing on the conversations of the crew, captured by the ship's data recorder, this analysis of the tragedy recounts the crisis as it unfolded on board, investigates the captain's decision to steer directly into the storm and reviews the shortcomings of the merchant fleet and the increased threat represented by climate change. Off-mint.
